Students explore the concept of finding the volume of a solid formed by cross sections of a function that form certain shapes.
Students will be introduced to the concept of finding the volume of a solid formed by cross sections of a function that form certain shapes.
Since volume is the area of the base times the height and dV = Area ∙ dx, students review areas of various shapes like squares, semicircles and equilateral triangles.
Calculator screen snapshots are used to help students get a visual of the volume under consideration.
Students will practice what they learn with exam-like questions for homework or as an extension.
